While writing this book I had only one aim before me, I
wanted to make available to all knowledge regarding Yog, which I have acquired
by practising it myself. Yog is not meant for a group of specialists, it is for the
benefit of all irrespective of age, caste, creed, religion, nationality and sex. Every
individual can benefit from the practice of Yog.
In this book, out of the eight
components of Yog I have dealt with only four namely, Yam, Niyam, Asan and
Pranayam. You cannot fully benefit by just reading, thinking or understanding the
facts given here in what is needed is regular practice of the four components. So
do not only read the book, practice what has been described and you will not only
benefit physically but also mentally. It will change your life style and attitude
towards life. You will digest better and enjoy the true taste of food. Yog will make
your body shapely and graceful. Your mind will be free of tension and your outlook
will become cheerful. As a result you will remain youthful, energetic and healthy all
your life. It will ensure success in whatever you do.
The poet Vrinda has
stressed the importance of regular practice of Yog in one of his verses: By
constant study the ignorant becomes learned just as constant friction causes a
dent even on a hard stone. He wrote this when he saw some women drawing
water from a well. The stone on the wall of the well had developed a dent because
of the constant friction of the rope. So remember practice makes perfect.
important thing to bear in mind about Yog is that the practice of Asans should be
gradual. Begin by practising one Asan only until you have mastered it. If you try to
many at one time you will not master any, on the contrary you may harm yourself.
Therefore by patient and regular, beginning with only one asan.
I am confident
this book will prove useful to you by making you healthy, youthful and active in
body and cheerful in mind.
